This great fantasy really has a shot at the Newbery, in my opinion! In the kingdom of Carthya, things are not good. The royal family may or may not have been murdered, and several neighboring kingdoms are ready to invade, just as some of the King's closest advisors are threatening treason. Wouldn't it be a miracle if Prince Joran, long thought drowned in a pirate attack, turned out to be alive, and showed up to take the throne and lead the nation to victory? Sage is just an orphan trying to keep alive when Conner, one of the King's noblemen, shows up and makes an offer: Sage looks enough like Prince Joran, and he has some sword skills. With Conner's support, is Sage willing pretend to be the lost prince, and to claim the throne for himself? Would he be just Conner's puppet, or can he truly be a king? This story is packed with action and lots of suspense. I was totally satisfied by the end, but I'm thrilled to hear this is Book One in what will be a trilogy. I can't wait for Book Two!
I love this book it is probably one of my favorite fantasys ever!!! I like how Sage is a kid who isnt affraid to say NO
